Every process of transformation—human, institutional, or community—begins with the stage of consciousness. Can we evolve without being fully aware of what we want to achieve? Of course! However, this implies going as a wind vane, waiting for the wind to indicate the direction to follow, with the respective risks and consequences of lack of control or defocusing. A second step involves making decisions, which implies risk, which generates fear, which ultimately paralyzes the decision-making processes; preparing ourselves consciously for this stage is highly relevant. The third stage, action, involves a lot of discipline; the problem with this is that comfort also paralyzes us as human beings. This is perhaps the biggest challenge to overcome. Transited the previous three, evolution involves two different types of challenges: 1) how to continue adding value to what we have achieved and 2) how to restart the cycle reinventing us again and again. This chapter explores these beginning steps.
